CruiserMaxx Plus Soybean Seed Treatment Now Available from Syngenta Seedcare

  • CruiserMaxx® Plus receives EPA registration for use on soybeans
  • Offers a higher rate of mefenoxam (Apron XL® seed treatment fungicide) to provide increased activity against Pythium and Phytophthora
  • Combines the proven protection of CruiserMaxx insecticide/fungicide seed treatment, plus additional mefenoxam in one, easy-to-use formulation

Greensboro, NC, October 13, 2010 – Syngenta Seedcare announced Environmental Protection Agency registration of CruiserMaxx Plus insecticide/fungicide seed treatment for use on soybeans. CruiserMaxx Plus will join the CruiserMaxx Beans brand family as a new formulation and will offer all the benefits of CruiserMaxx insecticide/fungicide seed treatment, plus a higher rate of mefenoxam for increased protection against Pythium and Phytophthora, in one convenient product. CruiserMaxx Plus will utilize a red colorant to distinguish itself from the blue colorant in CruiserMaxx.

 

“Soybean growers have always been impressed with the consistent protection CruiserMaxx provides,” said Mark Jirak, crop manager for Syngenta Seedcare. “Traditionally, retailers in areas with high levels of Pythium and Phythophthora have had to spike CruiserMaxx with additional mefenoxam for enhanced disease protection. Now, with the introduction of CruiserMaxx Plus, retailers will benefit from the convenience of an all-in-one product, while offering their grower customers the same level of insect and disease protection they have come to expect from the CruiserMaxx brand.”

 

CruiserMaxx Plus provides protection against a broad spectrum of both soil-dwelling and foliar-feeding insect pests, as well as all major seed- and soil-borne disease pathogens for increased vigor, stand, speed to canopy and yield potential.

 

CruiserMaxx Plus will be available for the 2011 planting season. Contact your local Syngenta Seedcare representative for more information.
